7:01am
that and miley's surprising new look have a lot of people talking today, friday, look have a lot of people talking today, friday, september 7th 2012. captions paid for by nbc-universal television good morning. welcome to today, friday morning, i'm mauer. >> gd morning. i'm savannah guthrie. >> you were up late. great job in charlotte. it lasted late last night. >> we lappeded about 2:30 a.m. i guess forgive me if i make no sense whatsoever today. >> got an a plane and got back to the show. >> a little foggy. >> speaking of no rest, president obama hitting the campaign trail right away today, new hampshire on the heels of his speech last night. the president made it pretty clear how the campaign sees this. the choice facing voters comes
7:02am
down to two different visions for the future. >> he acknowledged some failings during his first term while arguing he rescued the economy from disaster but the president says he still needs more time to turn things completely around. we're going to have more on his speech and talk to jim cramer this morning about how this morning's job report could impact the race for the presidency straight ahead. also a case we've been following for years, former police officer drew peterson facing up to 60 years behind bars after he was convicted of murdering his third wife. this morning her sister speaks out about that verdict in an exclusive interview. >> still questions about the disappearance of his fourth wife. imagine if everything you knew changed, your life turned completely upside down. two young women that grew up in amish communities and recently made the difficult decision to leave their simple lives for life in new york city. they are going to share their
7:03am
stories coming up. all right. we want to begin with the presidential race and president obama's acceptance speech to close out the democratic national convention. nbc's chuck todd our political director and white house correspondent is in charlotte this morning. chuck, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. they acknowledged it wasn't his most poetic speech, not on par with previous convention speeches and maybe not the best convention speech of the week, a distinction michelle obama or president clinton could make. because of realities, the president decided that had to trump soaring rhetoric. >> madam chairwoman, delegates, i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> reporter: facing the political fight of his life, the 44th president of the united states made the case for his re-election, asking americans to stick with him for another four years despite tough economic times. >> our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met.
7:04am
the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place, and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> reporter: four years later the president felt he had to appeal to voters exhausted by the tone of american politics. >> i know campaigns may seem small, even sill sly sometimes. trivial things become big attractions. if you're sick of me approving this message, believe me, so am i. >> reporter: but obama pulled no punches when it came to his republican rival. his references to opponent turned him into a punch line. >> my opponent is new to foreign policy. you may not be ready if you can't visit the olympics without insulting our closest ally. if you can't afford to start a business or go to college, take my opponent's advice and borrow
7:05am
money from your parents. >> reporter: lacking rhetoric of 2004 and 2008 he used this speech to frame the word choice using the word choice or choose more than 20 times. >> the choice you face won't just be between two candidates or two parties, it will be a choice between two different paths for america, a choice between two fundamentally different advices for the future. >> for dissolution the president tried to define hope and change, hoping to redefine his base, particularly young voters. >> the election four years ago wasn't about me. it was about you. my fellow citizens, you were the change. you're the reason a young immigrant who grew up here and went to school here and pledged allegiance to our flag will no longer be deported from the only country she's ever called home. why selfless soldiers won't be kicked out of the military because of who they are or who they love.
7:06am
>> reporter: beyond the president's speech, the convention's most powerful mom came earlier thursday. >> i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america. >> reporter: there was not a dry eye in the house as former arizona congresswoman gabby giffords recited the pledge of allegiance. >> in divisible, liberty and justice for all. >> reporter: the obamas and bidening traveled together to new hampshire. they do a rally together there, then iowa, a rally together there. then split up, ohio for biden, florida for the president. by the way, mitt romney will also be in iowa and new hampshire. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. joe scarborough, the host of morning joe on nbc. he's in charlotte. good morning to you. >> good morning. i'm in charlotte and i'm in a
7:07am
bar. >> so situation normal, nothing different for you, joe. let's talk about that speech last night. obviously obama landed on the political scene in 2004, four years ago saw him in denver going strong. yesterday we saw a different approach, not the soaring oratory, given the democrats' past-of- inspiring enthusiasm among voters. did he deliver? >> he certainly delivered in the convention hall, excited his base. did we see anything new from barack obama, any proposals with a mandate going forward? no. as we said before hand, as jeff greenfield said before on the set, they weren't swinging for the fences. michelle obama, bill clinton set this president up well. they believe they were going to believe mitt romney this fall, so they decided they didn't have to take a lot of chances. the president didn't take a lot of chances but he did what he
7:08am
needed to do. if this is going to be an election, much like 2004, where you had a president below 50%, george w. bush and they inspired their base. i think if you just look at it through that lens, the president did exactly what he needed to do last night. >> you obviously were in charlotte all week, tampa the week before. pound for pound, speech for speech, make a call, who had the better convention and who the most riding on it? >> good lord, pound for pound, round for round, this wasn't aly versus frasier it was muhammed ali versus wepner. you could tell from the first night when michelle obama came up there and gave a remarkable speech, one of the best speeches i've heard from a first lady that this was going to be a convention that was focused on explaining why barack obama made a difference. between michelle obama and bill clinton, joe widen gave a great speech last night. they all hit home runs, they all
7:09am
hit it out of the park where you had a republican convention that was trying to figure out how to love mitt romney. it really was problematic for a convention in tampa that just wasn't excited about their nominee. you felt that in tampa but here in charlotte you certainly from the first day felt the love for their nominee. >> joe scarborough in a bar in charlotte, i'm going to pretend i got that chuck wepner reference. >> look that up. thank you, savannah. >> mitt romney will be david gregory's exclusive guest sunday on "meet the press." 7:09. >> scott wepner, bayonne bleeder. that's a good reference. to the jobs report, impact the race, dow closed 1392 thursday. that's the highest closing mark since december 2007. jim cramer, the host of cnbc's mad money, good to see you.
7:10am
not only the dow up in record territory, the nasdaq hitting the highest mark since 2000, s&p 500, the highest since 2008, why the party atmosphere. >> we're seeing much better numbers from most of the companies we deal with, particularly companies based in america. it's really positive. the earnings are good. >> we're going to look at some jobs numbers this morning. we should mention the president had those numbers last night when he took to the podium, he knows what's coming. what are you expecting? >> he has a poker face. he didn't seem to tip the number will be that great. a little better than expected, not much more. >> better than expected, a lot of people predicting 135,000 jobs created, unemployment sticking at 8.3%. is that what you see? >> maybe 10,000 more than that. we got some encourages numbers. but nothing that moves the needle on unemployment. >> writes the strength in the job mark, where are the weaknesses. >> really only strength oil and gas, particularly oil. we're finding it places we didn't have it.
7:11am
>> these are going to be the august job numbers. we're going to get september and october and octobers just a couple days before voters head to the polls in november. do you remember a time where data like this has had such an amazing effect or will have such a big effect on the political situation. >> no. this is it. this is the highest jobless rate. we've got a terrible percentage. remember, 2007 period we had pretty good unemployment numbers. we don't have that kind of percentage now. >> some of the analysts i've been reading have said no matter who is president over the next four years, the economy will add about 12 million jobs just because of the cycle it's in. are you on board with that? >> i kind of am. i've got to tell you we haven't built much in this country in the last four or five years. no big buildings, not a lot of houses. we have a lot of pentup demand in autos and exports. it's not such a bad moment. >> jim cramer, jim, always good to have you here. thank you very much. can you watch mad money, 6:00
7:12am
and 11:00 eastern time on cnbc. 11 after the hour, here is savannah. >> thanks, matt. another story we're following prince harry's did he loimt to afghanistan. a four-month stint there flying apache attack capitolers. in cable afghanistan, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. he's known as captain harry wales by the army. he's here for a start of a four-month deployment. he's looking quite relaxed as he was inspecting apache helicopters where he'll be a gunner in charge of the arsenal as he fights the insurgency. a royal entrance into a a war zone as prince harry arrives in helmand province, afghanistan, for his second time in the country. >> a welcome to the squad ran and captain wales. >> reporter: his deployment may be a surprise to us but may explain why he let his hair down and took his clothes off in las
7:13am
vegas last month. >> i think he was in vegas because he knew he was going to be deployed, he was letting off steam, probably a little too much. >> reporter: harry will deal with a different time of steam in helmand, no longer king of the pool parties but flying apaeches in the province providing air cover for military missions. >> working with colleagues in the squadron, a difficult and demanding job. i ask he be left to get on with his duties and allow him to focus and deliver support to the coalition troops on the ground. >> reporter: stationed at one of the largest nato bases in the country he won't be far from his former base. his 2008 deployment was kept a secret by the army for fear he would become a taliban target but his mission was cut short when an australian gossip magazine leaked pictures of the prince in combat. harry has been itching to get back every since. will his vegas antics put him in
7:14am
the outs with his military mates. >> there's no question the army would be disappointed with the publicity surrounding prince harry's antics in las vegas. the truth is he's a dam good apache pilot, one of the best in his squad. >> reporter: as he returns to military fat eagles his charity work will be put on hold for now as he serves in the most important role in his life as a british soldier not a prince. those vegas pictures may have gotten him in trouble with the palace but he has dozens of fans waiting for him in helmand. in the past two weeks pictures surfacing on the web saluting the prince and stripping down. so there are a lot of people looking forward to seeing him, savannah. >> all right, in kabul this morning, thank you. >>. 7:14, here is matt. >> officials at yosemite national mark extending an alert on the virus after a number of
7:15am

7:32am
>> the defendant in this case was a coward and a bully. >> reporter: eight and a half years after her death savio's family is jubilant. >> finally someone heard kathleen's fly. twelve people did the right thing. >> savio was found dead in the waterless bathtub of his suburban home in 2004. originally it was ruled an accidental drowning. then when peterson's fourth wife stacy went missing in october 2007, suspicions were raised. savio's body was exhumed, her death ruled a homicide. extensive searches for 23-year-old stacy peterson turned up nothing and she remains missing to this day. drew peterson insisted stacy had run off with another man. he spoke with matt in november 2007. >> can you look me straight in the eye and tell me you had nothing to do with the death of your third wife kathy or the disappearance of your fourth wife stacy. >> i can look right in your eye
7:33am
and say i had nothing to do with either of those instances. >> reporter: but acquaintances of stacy came forward with stories they say she told them, how peterson had threatened to kill her and how peterson had asked her to provide him for an alibi for the night savio died. >> i couldn't come up with any reason, in my mind, to not put him at the scene beyond a reasonable doubt. >> reporter: in 2008, the state of illinois passed a law allowing such hearsay evidence to be used in court. it was dubbed the drew law. >> will this conviction stick? in my opinion, we will end up .supreme court of the united states on this case. >> reporter: peterson's defense team immediately said it plans to appeal his conviction for savio's murder. >> it was hearsay evidence allowed un, unprecedented amount. >> reporter: now the friends and family of stacy say they want drew peterson charged with her death as well.
7:34am
>> no matter what, still have it pay the price for stacy. i still believe that's around the corner. >> reporter: peterson faces a maximum of 60 years in jail. illinois does not have the death penalty. he'll be sentenced november 26th. true to form he was overheard saying as he was leaving the courtroom, i guess this will ruin my christmas. matt. >> kevin tibbles in illinois this morning, kevin, thank you very much. kathleen savio's sister was in court for the verdict. she's with us along with her attorney. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> i'll get to the verdict in a second. you heard it. talk to me about what it's been like to sit in the courtroom over the last few weeks. >> i wasn't allowed in there much because i did testify. i was only in there for the closing statements. >> and what was it like to see him and watch his democratic, too, as kevin just mentioned, he was always playing to the cameras as he has been for the
7:35am
last eight or so years. what was it like to sit through that. >> very typical drew, typical sociopath, all full of himself. >> when you heard the jury's verdict of guilty, just give me your immediate reaction. >> when i first heard it, i was like, did i really hear that or do i want to hear it so bad that's what i heard. i was excited. i think that's what i heard. i looked at my sister next to me. i said, did i hear guilty. she looks, starts screaming, guilty. i thought i heard it. you wait and want it so much. >> these last eight years you talk about a civil suit being filed. you talk about your sister's body being exhumed, another autopsy. >> all horrible, yes. >> you say you always knew he was responsible for your sister's death. what made you so sure? >> just by the way he had treated her and things she had told us over the years.
7:36am
he had great motive. between the motive and the way he had been, just knowing drew. she told me multiple times he said he was going to kill me. she was terrified of the guy. >> john, there was a lot of controversy and a lot of talk during this trial there might be a mistrial because there was so much hearsay allowed into this based on drew's law out there in illinois. do you think that law and hearsay now jeopardizes this verdict? >> not at all, matt. the illinois supreme court has ruled on the constitutionality of it, upheld it. it's commonly referred to as the voice from the grave. basically it says someone can't benefit by silencing another person who has incriminating testimony against them and it's fair. >> but do you think that drew peterson could have been convicted or would have been convicted were it not for that hearsay? >> it would have been more difficult, but this is just the perfect crime just got a little more difficult to commit.
7:37am
all things considered it's equitable, fair, constitutional and the conviction will stand that. >> i'm interested in your take on this. stacy peterson's family hopes the attention will turn to their loved one. what would you like to say to them about the perseverance they are going to need and the time it perhaps could take for them to see justice? >> well, i've talked to them. i told them, i said, eventually it will come. i'm praying for them. anything i can do to help you i will definitely do. it's tough losing someone you love. i miss my sister desperately. at least i know where she is and what happened. not knowing, i can't imagine how horrible that has to be. >> anna, i thank you for your time this morning. we really appreciate it. john, always good to see you. thank you as well. >> thank you. >> you can see more on the story on "dateline," 10:00, 9:00 central time right here on nbc.
7:38am
let's get a check of the weather from al roker. >> thanks very much. a rick of strong storms from st the way from detroit down to little rock, as far east as columbus, could be possible hail, tornadoes could be isolated as well. we're looking at 1 to 3 inches of rain. tomorrow sunny and hot in the western part of the country from the plains all the way down to texas it's going to be sunny and warm. as we move on into sunday, look for late-day showers in new england. some clouds and possibly showers in the pacific northwest the rest of the country looking warm and dry. that's what's going on around the u.s. here's what's happening in your neck of the woods. >> veronica johnson here. we could see the possibility of storms here tomorrow, down to richmond and up in philadelphia. but for today it's going to be quiet and dry where it's 72 degrees right now. we've got a lot of sunshine across the area. today's high 91 degrees. feeling a little bit of heat today.
